Subject: Charming book not just for children
This is a beautifully written and illustrated book which is well-preserved in its internet form.

It is a well-organized and comprehensive book about birds.

There are many other books at the internet archive with titles that describe themselves as children's books, but are really fine for all ages.

It is worth looking for them.
